Digibarn: Intran-BringingInformationToLife (1984)

by Intran



Video on the Intran Metaform system: "Bringing Information to Life" (1983 or 1984)

DigiBarn is proud to present digital restorations of an original Intran video from the later mature version of the product running on the Perq T2 workstation. Thanks Debbie Schilling for providing this video.

This is a promotional video for Minneapolis, MN based Intran company and its Metaform software system, a highly innovative interactive document and graphics platform that first appeared in the early 1980s on the PERQ workstation. Metaform and its associated products used a unique interface that one could argue has not been equaled today. Metaform was launched before the Lisa, Macintosh or many other computing systems that used a bit-mapped graphic screen and mouse. In fact Metaform and the PERQ workstation is a bridge between the innovative environments developed by Xerox on the Alto computer and the coming of consumer machines with graphical user interfaces (GUIs).
